Brad Gair has been named director of housing recovery operations for New York City.

Gair previously was appointed federal recovery officer for 9/11. From 2006 to 2009, he served as deputy commissioner for the city's Office of Emergency Management.

Gair will oversee the city's efforts to house all New Yorkers who have been displaced by the storm.

Mayor Michael Bloomberg said Monday that representatives of his administration will serve as community recovery directors.
